Staying healthy improves your overall well-being and can help keep your weight consistent, give you more energy, reduce the risk of chronic disease and even delay the aging process. Doing small things each and every day can help make big strides toward your overall health.
Here are 5 tips for keeping yourself healthy naturally:
- Eat and drink well: No one expects you to be able to eat and drink right for every meal of the day. However, increasing the amount of water you drink and fruits and vegetables you eat each day can go a long way toward keeping yourself healthy in a natural way.
- Exercise: Thirty minutes of exercise each day can directly improve your cardiovascular health, promote weight loss, reduce stress, increase productivity, increase energy and even boost your mood. An exercise session can be a short walk with a friend, a bike ride or a half hour gym session.
- Get a good night’s sleep: Life is always busy and stressful, but a good night’s sleep is a must for your overall health. Sleep also provides many important benefits including reducing stress, improving memory, and it can even reduce inflammation and your chance of getting cancer.
- Do not smoke: We all know that smoking is the number one cause of lung cancer, but you should also be aware that smoking can contribute to an increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, liver cancer and even erectile dysfunction. Staying away from cigarettes and tobacco is an important way to keep yourself healthy.
- Consider chiropractic adjustments: Regular chiropractic adjustments can dramatically improve your joint mobility, lower blood pressure, reduce back and neck pain as well as improve headaches (including migraines). If that is not enough, chiropractic care encourages your body to heal itself, which has benefits for your entire body. Regular chiropractic adjustments are non-invasive and can help prevent surgery.
Things may not be perfect, but all in all you may feel like your life is going pretty well. You feel good about your job, you love your family, you are taking care of yourself…and then, seemingly out of nowhere, you suffer an injury. Maybe you strain a lower back muscle carrying groceries in from the car or feel a painful tightness in your hamstring after a run. Or maybe you are feeling all over body pain from a fall. There are many different ways to suffer an injury. If you live in or near St. Paul, MN, there is at least one way to receive effective natural treatment for nearly every injury you can suffer, and that way is by partnering with St. Paul Chiropractic & Natural Medicine Center for chiropractic adjustment for injury treatment.
Benefits of Chiropractic Treatment for Treating and Preventing Injury
Headaches can be severe, come on without warning and can have a significant impact on your daily life. They can be caused by many different things including diet, stress, hunger, changes in sleep patterns, hormones, tension in your body, exposure to bright light and even the glare from a computer screen or your smartphone. Finding relief for your headache can be as difficult as determining the exact cause. Many people rely on over the counter pain medication that simply mask the headache, without actually addressing the cause. One highly effective alternative to pain medication is to find headache relief from chiropractic care. The team at St. Paul Chiropractic & Natural Medicine Center can help you manage the pain and get rid of your headaches and migraines without having to rely on medicine.
How Does Chiropractic Care Help Headaches?
Chiropractic treatment for headaches can include spinal manipulation, massage and exercises for your neck that can offer significant improvement in headache symptoms.
Many of us have childhood memories of being told by adults to “stand up straight.” We may not have ever been told why it was so important, but as we get older, the reason becomes clearer. It is important to find a healthy neutral position that encourages the strengthening of muscles and minimizes the stress on connective tissue in your back and neck. When we get into a habit of slouching, we train the muscles, tendons and ligaments that support them to change the alignment of our bodies. This makes us more susceptible to back pain, neck pain and other chiropractic issues. At St. Paul Chiropractic & Natural Medicine Center, we can help you answer the question, “How Does Poor Posture Really Affect Us?” Continue reading

There are many drugs available to those of us suffering from a wide range of ailments, and many of us take such drugs—prescribed, over-the-counter, and otherwise—without giving much thought to the long-term effects of putting those substances in our bodies. When it comes to arthritis, the drugs that are prescribed may provide some measure of relief, but most of them only mask the pain. And when the dose wears off, we take another dose that masks the pain anew, and we cannot really be sure about how much of the drug lingers in our bodies. St. Paul Chiropractic & Natural Medicine Center offers natural arthritis relief with chiropractic care.

However, we offer an alternative treatment that, for some people, can replace pain-relieving drugs and, for some others, complements the drugs they have been prescribed.
